My birthday face


First of all I must apologise for not doing a Sunday post this week. I fancied having a day off to really enjoy by birthday with my family, I'm sure you all understand.

So for todays post I felt like sharing my make up choices for my big 27. A look that was quick and easy *story of my make up life. It does include a new lipstick which Tony bought me and chose himself. What a keeper. So ... "whats on you face" I hear you cry!

Birthday #FOTD:

Base-
I started by using the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser as I wanted something very natural as I was just staying in at my parents house and didn't need something full coverage. I skipped things like highlighting and contouring and just swept some Mac Peaches over my cheeks for a bit of a fresh faced look.

Brows-
I was feeling ever so lazy this morning and went for the easy option for my brows. Just an angled brush and some Mac Brun shadow and just set it with some Miss Sporty clear mascara. This is my fast option for brows and does end up quite a nice natural look.

Eyes-
Curling my eyelashes is something I could not live without, and for that job the Kevin Aucoin eyelash curlers do the trick perfectly. I know there is so much hype for the Shu Uemura ones however I love the KA ones and feel no need to swap. For shadow base I used the Laura Mercier eyeshadow cream and used Mac Mulch in the crease to add some definition. I have really tried to stick to using the Maybelline falsies mascara and am starting to love it.

Lips-
To my surprise a present from Tony was a lipstick from Nars. This is my second Nars product ever so I was pretty excited when I opened it. The shade is called Grace and it's a pink/red and is just beautiful. Lovely creamy formula that has lasted virtually all day through drinking and eating (lots of it btw). Expect a write up soon. I'm totally obsessed with this lipstick already and would love some more suggestions if any of you have any.

All in all an effortless, fresh, quick, pretty make up look that is easy to re-create. Hope you all have a lovely day, see you Wednesday.

Happy Monday
xoxo

  3. I love how perfect and yet completely natural your brows look! Good for you that you don't even have to spend much time on them to make them look like this ^.^

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
